Default My samsung froze on the update and now wont turn on

basically i updated the firmware with kies, and it wont turn on past the start up screen that says the make of the phone.

i took it into orange today and they said to find a solution online, so i was hoping someone would know what to do?

if anyone knows how to reboot the phone completely that would be appreciated

If you can't get the download screen to pop up (by holding volume down + home + power) then you definitely bricked your phone. This can't be repaired by you, so you'll need to get it serviced.

Probably your service provider, they should be able to contact the manufacturer because Samsung is a pain to get a hold of!

then if odin has found recognized your phone you can start the flash process, dont do anything until the timer is out and the pass sign is given.
